Weeks of firsts

As you know, Hope and I are the proud owners of an RV. It's stored at Knights Key right in the middle of the gorgeous Florida Keys. Our intention is for one or the other of us to drive down every month and spend a few days relaxing and working. That's the nice part of owning a mostly-internet business - we can work anywhere there's an internet connection! So Hope and I thought I should go down first. I don't know why. It seemed like a good idea at the time. But, my car was ten years old and showing its age badly. I'd had to put more money than it deserved in it over the last few months. So, I traded in the old rattle-trap and got a 2012 Subaru Forester. Able to handle our vicious Chicago winters, and roomy enough to handle all the stuff I schlep. So in my brand new car and with Tango along, I drove to Florida. 1500 miles and about 2 1/2 days one way. I arrived at our campsite, where we'd directed the nice people at Knights Key to park the RV. I connected everything and set up my laptop! Here are some pictures.

Lovely, Fran! I know you and Tango had a great week.

If you've not owned a Subaru before, congrats on your new wheels! I currently have my 7th, and lots of my family members drive them. Comfy, reliable, and dog-friendly!!!

Thanks, Pam. You're on your 7th? I knew Subaru owners can be passionate! This is my first one, and so far it's great. Very spacious in back - I think there'll be enough room for four crates if we arrange them right!
